Insulated Wall Panels
Insulated composite wall panels are a practical and cost-effective way to make a building energy efficient as well as regulating temperature throughout the year, keeping the internal environment cooler in summer and warmer in winter. In addition, the insulation can help reduce condensation, which provides health benefits to occupants and workers by reducing mould and damp, whilst protecting the building fabric from corrosion.
Insulated wall panels consist of an external and internal metal sheet, which are usually made of galvanised painted steel. Standard sheet thicknesses tend to be between 0.4mm to 1.0mm, which offer a variety of strengths as required. Insulation is available in both polyurethane and polyisocyanurate (PUR and PIR) as well as rockwool (also known as mineral wool). When choosing the type of insulation, flammability and resistance, or structural characteristics such as thermal and moisture protection, should be considered.
Insulated wall sheets often have a micro rib profile structure, there is an alternative option of corrugated box profile. These provide metal wall panels with extra rigidity whilst creating an appealing aesthetic and reduced installation times.
Gordian Building Solutions offer a wide range of insulated metal wall panels with up to a 40 year guarantee – assured longevity for most buildings. This provides you with the confidence that you are making the best investment in terms of long-term energy efficiency and low maintenance.
Gordian Building Solutions provides insulated wall panels from the leading suppliers including; Kingspan, Tata, Joris Ide, Steadmans and many others. Some of the benefits from using insulated roofing sheets as opposed to traditional roofing alternatives are as follows:
A significant amount of all heat can be lost through poorly insulated walls, which results in increased costs that are reflected on your energy bills. Insulated metal wall panels also offer rapid construction, incredible durability and energy efficiency, driving down overall installation and operating costs.
Composite wall panels are supplied in various profiles, colours and custom modular widths, providing aesthetically pleasing design options for horizontal installation.
Ease of installation:
Composite cladding panels are available in a wide range of thicknesses to meet building regulations and achieve the required u-values. They are easy to install and are less labour-intensive compared to traditional, built up and twin skin metal wall solutions which usually have several layers and components. The ‘one layer’ or one component aspect of insulated wall sheets means that a larger area can be covered in a shorter time.
Galvanised painted metal components not only last longer, but they age well too. Composite wall panels are manufactured from the highest quality materials, using state-of-the-art production equipment and rigorous quality control standards to ensure long term reliability and service life.
Gordian Building Solutions’ composite wall cladding offers effective solutions for combatting condensation on the rear side of the wall. When temperature and humidity conditions reach the dew point, moisture in the air condenses on the rear side of uninsulated metal wall sheets. These droplets can fall causing damage to the contents below or accelerate corrosion of the building structure. Our insulated micro rib panels tackle this issue by ensuring the temperature on the panel never reaches dew point. A range of ventilation accessories also ensure constant circulation of air to reduce relative humidity and create healthier buildings.
